Artists Taking Action


Artists Taking Action, presented by ConvergeDance Buffalo, was held on Saturday, May 13, 2017 at the New ALT Theatre with 100% of proceeds going to the International Institute of Buffalo (IIB).  We had a wonderful evening celebrating Buffalo’s mission to build a welcoming and safe community for arriving and resettled refugees and immigrants.


We are happy to announce that with 78 people in attendance, Artists Taking Action raised $3,362.00 for the International Institute of Buffalo! Thank you to all who sponsored, donated, and supported our event. We are beyond grateful that you care as much as we do.

We hope to see you next time in support of another worthy cause!

IIB’s mission:

Making WNY a better place for, and because of, refugees and immigrants.
